Dostoevsky Museum

Saint Petersburg | Russia

About the Museum

Among Dostoevsky's numerous Petersburg addresses, the building on the corner of Kuznechny Lane and Dostoevsky Street (formerly Yamskaya) holds particular significance. The writer moved there with his family in the beginning of October 1878 and was to reside there until the day of his death in January 28, 1881. It was in this house that many of Dostoevsky's contemporaries were to visit him, and his last novel, entitled "The Brothers Karamazov", was written. This simple, completely ordinary Petersburg apartment building, devoid of distinctive architectural features, has become one of the most popular attractions in the city today precisely because it was there that Dostoevsky lived and died.
